This young man has moved from one of our supported accommodations where he worked well with staff to improve his independent living skills.

This 54 year old lady has health problems and her husband has significant disabilities. They are unable to work and can only just about manage on benefits for basic necessities. Unfortunately recently her asthma has considerably worsened, and is exacerbated by the fact that as they have no outside space to dry their laundry damp clothes have to be hung up indoors. A tumble dryer would make a huge difference to her health but there is no way they could afford to buy one on their current income.
B is disabled and struggles with both his physical and metal health. He is very trusting and allowed some people to stay with him during lockdown. They betrayed his trust and stole from him.

His neighbour has helped him and bought him replacement clothes, food and a bed, but he still needs your help to get a second hand sofa and a mini cooker. Please help this very vulnerable man.
S is a 33 year old lady who lives with her husband and sons (aged 13 and 6). S suffers with a serious medical condition and is on long-term palliative care. She has to use an electric wheelchair to mobilise. Her eldest son has brittle bone disease. The family spends a great deal of time at home as a result.
